The YAZICI TRANSFER MAKINA company opted to install a second NITREX turnkey nitrocarburizing system to its Istanbul site, to improve the manufacturing capacity of tooling and machinery components for the firm’s precision CNC machines. Equipped with Nitreg®-C nitrocarburizing and ONC® in-process oxidation treatments, the new system started production in the fall of 2021.
This second NITREX furnace is the same type as the first one that began operating in 2019, that is a compact NXK series furnace, although it is larger.
“In addition to improving tooling quality and performance, the NXK-812 is very economical to operate, if you take into account the low gas consumption and optimized energy efficiency. A solution that improves the company’s bottom line and reaffirms its commitment to sustainable manufacturing,” explains Marcin Stokłosa, project manager at NITREX Poland.
Nitreg®-C nitrocarburizing and ONC® in-process oxidation were chosen by YAZICI TRANSFER MAKINA for their combined ability to improve the wear and corrosion qualities of alloy and carbon steel products.
“In the beginning, YAZICI TRANSFER MAKINA was relying on a very well-known commercial heat treater from the Turkish market to nitrocarburize the parts it needed,” says Utku Inan, Nitrex representative in Turkey. “But now, the company has moved heat treating operations in-house, purchasing its own systems to nitrocarburize metal parts, which saves the company on lead time and transportation costs”.
